Many of us will have forgotten it was a Republican who foisted Obamacare upon the American people. Her vote brought it out of committee to the senate floor for a vote. Had she not voted for this bill, it would have died. Olympia Snowe’s legacy will forever be the demise of our freedom and government so out of control that it will shackle all generations after us. The GOP does not have high ground to stand on. They are the party of the good old boy establishment. Trent Lott who said,
“We don’t need a lot of Jim DeMint disciples,” Lott said in an interview. “As soon as they get here, we need to co-opt them.”
It’s easy to see Mr. Lott doesn’t stand with citizens who are tired of being shackled with over spending and regulations. NO! He likes keeping his power and burdening the American people as long as he has his.
Lindsey Graham evoked Jesus Christ as his reason for voting for Elena Kagan. See Michelle Malkin’s article.
Orrin Hatch openly admitted, “I despise these people,” referring to Freedom Works and tea party citizens hoping to remove him from office. Once again the good old boy mentality rages when they are threatened by the lowly citizen.
The votes giving the President his “traditional right” to have who he wants on the Supreme Court of the United States is an affront to every freedom loving person who lives under the flag of this country. The senator who votes a freedom killing bill out of committee is an affront to all citizens who love our Founding Fathers and Constitution.
Today America may have died and I see no real help coming from the GOP. Romney is Obama-lite. I don’t trust him. But what is our choice? If we leave Obama in place we will be full-blown Communists by the time he ends his reign. The GOP will only slow the demise. The only hope was to remove people like Hatch, Graham, Snowe and those of their ilk. I don’t hold much hope.
Those who voted for Barack Obama because they wanted to be part of history have done exactly that. They have become partners with weak-kneed justices and politicians who long ago forgot their oath of offices to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, as written, to protect our Republic.
My neighbors voted for this man. Now some regret it. Too late! You’ve stolen my grandchildrens’ future, freedom, and economic prosperity.
I believe the quote from Scott Horton, in Harper’s Magazine, July 2007 says it well:
As Benjamin Franklin left the Constitutional Convention, on September 18, 1787, a certain Mrs. Powel shouted out to him: “Well, doctor, what have we got?,” and Franklin responded: “A Republic, if you can keep it.” Like many of the Founding Fathers, he was intensely concerned that the democratic institutions they were crafting would deteriorate over time. In particular, they were concerned—and talked ceaselessly during the convention about the risk that, under pressures and exigencies of war, a tyrant would collapse their system into something closer to the monarchy that they had just defeated. Over the intervening 220 years, the republic has maintained itself, though not without close calls. And today, while we face what may be the gravest challenge in the nation’s history, our media will serve up the next chapter in the life of Paris Hilton.
Little did we know the “war” would be within our borders perpetrated by our own government against its citizens. Olympia Snowe was part of that war against us. Her legacy of death to this Republic will live on. Never forget her. Never forget she cared not for us or our children. She cared only for power.
